I don't own this car anymore. I haven't owned it for years, but it still has a special place in my heart. My siblings and I couldn't afford cars when we first got our licenses, so our Uncle Gene gave us this big old Chevy. Just gave it to us! As we got our licenses, it was passed on down the line. Being the youngest, I got it last. It wasn't pretty, but it ran!
(I don't have this car anymore. Believe it or not, it was stolen right out of my locked garage while it was partially disassembled for restoration back in the mid 1990's. The car's picture, and those in it's album, are of a similar car sourced from the Internet.)
As a Corvair nut, it's kind of obvious that I like unusual cars. Well, this one was unusual even for a Corvair! How's this for a build sheet: The base 95 h.p. engine hooked up to the optional 4-speed transaxle, and powering the rare factory-optional air conditioning? Not only that, but it had the ultra-rare AM/FM radio too! I got a great screamin' deal on this car, and it served me very well as a nice weather car as well as taking myself and my three kids in comfort to several out-of-town Corvair Club events. It may not have been blindingly fast, but that air conditioning sure made up for a lot of that!
What do I know? It was years ago and I was a girl who didn't care what it had under the hood, as long as it ran!
